Following feedback from users the Register has been extended and improved. We have made the following changes:

  • users can now look for specific groups of providers, for example those with degree awarding powers, using the new filter function
  • links have been added, to signpost users to further information about specific providers
  • where providers have more than one operating name, these are now listed
  • publicly funded colleges that deliver higher education as a franchise are now included.

We will continue to develop the HEFCE Register, and will work in partnership with users, the sector and other regulators to do so. To provide feedback send comments to registerofproviders@hefce.ac.uk.

About the HEFCE Register

The HEFCE Register is an online searchable tool showing regulatory information about higher education providers that have particular relationships to Government in England: for example, whether a provider is publicly funded or delivers courses where students (if eligible) are able to apply for financial support. It shows how these providers are regulated and where to find more information about each one.

It sits alongside the Operating Framework for higher education which describes the framework of regulation designed to provide confidence in the overall system of English higher education.
